Our project On the Point, has 3 main actions:
Audience development - There are individuals and communities in our midst that do not feel connected to the contemporary arts, design and/or creative practice, and therefore all the benefits that they have to offer. We are seeking to mitigate this problem as a Partnership by producing 4 art/design works at specific sites in the Partners’ 4 cities. Each work will be co-produced with local people and tasked with overcoming the geographical and social barriers to creative arts engagement that these communities, of marginalised individuals in our cities encounter.
An 18-month transnational learning trajectory for young creatives - Capitalising on the learning benefits afforded by transnational mobility we will create a trajectory for 20 young creatives (18-29 years) that links with these locality-specific creative projects. Learning will be centred around and feed into these ‘live’ local works in the 4 Partners’ cities, the Partners’ extensive expertise and international networks, plus input from mentors/coaches and external experts. The Project Website will host a private communication platform for the young creatives to collaborate, share ideas and ask questions of each other during the project.
To communicate, contextualize and critique the Project Activities - The Project’s Activities, its learning and outcomes will involve and be disseminated to a wider network of professionals at appropriately themed regional and international conferences. And via live streaming, video, text and other documentation of events and activities on the Project Website. A Publication will also be jointly produced, contributing significantly to the qualitative evaluation of On the Point as well as a document of it. This will be distributed to a professional network of professionals.
